We reached the blue grotto and saw a cave like opening through which the boats were entering. Salvatore called a boat guy and asked us to get on his boat. He told us to pay him whatever we wished. The entry ticket to the blue grotto costs 14 euros/person. We bought the tickets from a boat that was embarked near the cave and entered the cave laying our low. For a few seconds, we couldn’t see anything. After a few seconds we looked behind us where the sun rays were entering through the crevice in the cave and causing it to seem a different shade f pearly blue. Our boat guy started singing some romantic Italian song while we were mesmerized by the colors in the cave. In a minute he rowed the boat outside the cave and we tipped him 5 euros.
When we moved ahead, it almost started raining and it felt really cold on the boat. We completed the trip and paid Salvatore. We had fixed this deal for 140 euros. But he gave 20 euros back to us saying it was raining and we couldn’t enjoy to the fullest. Such a gentle man! We talked to him a lot on the boat. Stuff about how his grandfather had started this business and he was the one who first came to the island. His family was staying here since then. We bade farewell to Salvatore upon reaching the shore. To book a trip with him, you can contact him through Whatsapp on +39 3285927977 or contact him through his website.
By this time, we were hungry so we went to a restaurant and sat there. We ordered gnocchi, pizza and some red wine there. In that cool breeze, the wine heated our insides. Food was delicious.
